Dean Barnett penned a fabulous piece for the WeeklyStandard giving insight into the alternate “world” of prominent lefty bloggers (HT: HH). I rarely take the time to read every word of an article, but this one caught me.

I’ve made several friends from the Kos community since the election, including two with whom I am writing an article for the American Statistical Association conference next month. Friendship aside for a moment, I have to say Dean nailed it on the head with his article.

Side note.

I didn’t recognize the name, but when I got to the end of the article, I certainly recognized the blog. Dean posts at SoxBlog, a blog that I used to read nearly every day when as newby blogger. At the time, I was a bit compulsive with this blog experiment and woke up at 4am every day to read the blogs – low, medium, and high traffic blogs alike.

After a spate of Hugh Hewitt links and thousands of hits that followed (I think 50,000 of my 80,000 hits at the original SCO came from Hugh), Dean wrote me with the subject line, “Truth in Advertising.” He ribbed me a bit for not being a low or medium traffic blogger anymore, but it was all in good fun. I’m glad to see the Weekly Standard recognize Dean’s talents.
